Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) were humbled by Mumbai Indians (MI) by a huge 81 runs despite Naveen ul Haq‘s four-wicket haul on Wednesday (May 24) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. LSG’s exit from the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) saw Naveen getting trolled heavily on social media.

The reason behind is this quite well known- Naveen and Gautam Gambhir’s ugly spat with former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli. Since that altercation, crowds across stadiums would shout Kohli’s name after seeing Naveen bowl his overs or when he fields near the boundary rope.

The Afghan pacer posted a couple of Instagram stories following the incident, mocking Virat Kohli and RCB’s not-so-impressive performances. In one of the stories, during an RCB match, Naveen shared pictures of mangoes with the caption: “sweet mangoes”, while in another story, he shared a laughing video after RCB’s elimination by the Gujarat Titans (GT).

But as LSG also faced the same result in the Eliminator against MI, the former’s Twitter handle, knowing Twitteratis would not spare the franchise, particularly Naveen and Gambhir, muted the terms related to mangoes on Twitter. LSG shared a screenshot of the muted words with the caption: “Issued in our interest“.

Though all the eyes were on Naveen during the Eliminator, the Afghan pacer was brilliant with the spells as he got rid of four MI batters, dismissing the likes of Rohit Sharma, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Cameron Green for 38 runs in his four overs. At the same time, he came up with a new shut-the-noise celebration, which he seemed to have directed toward the crowd for the ‘Kohli Kohli’ chants.

MI would put on 182/8 in 20 overs but last night’s star pacer Akash Madhwal‘s five-wicket-haul for five runs at an economy of 1.42 in 3.3 overs helped the five-time champions bundle out the Krunal Pandya-led side for 101 in 16.3 overs.
